Analysis of data from Sore Throat in Primary Care Project provided a scoring system, called the Mistik Score, to diagnose viral sore throat. The predictive model for positive viral analysis included the following variables: absence of headache, stuffy nose, sneezing, temperature of ???37.5C on physical examination, and the absence of tonsillar exudate and/or swelling. The probability of a positive viral analysis for a score of 5 was 82.1%. Modified Centor Score-Suggestion of use 1. 0 and less score-no need for further test or antibiotics 2. 1-3 score-throat culture or rapid antigen test, antibiotics for positive test 3. 4 and over-empirical antibiotic use Recent Publications 1.
